Your first time to Phuket and concerned you may choose an area for your accommodation base which is too busy or similarly, too quiet and far from facilities? Your safest bet is to consider a place to stay from our list of the best hotels in Kata Beach. Featuring ample restaurants, bars and shops this area with its stunning ribbon of sand is unlikely to disappoint no matter what your preferences, and is only 10 minutes from Karon, and 15 minutes from steaming Patong.
It is not the longest beach in Phuket, but undoubtedly one of the most ambient and scenic. To its south is Kata Noi, an intimate cove separated by a rocky outcrop. It is in our opinion the best place to stay to maximize a romantic holiday featuring luxury beachfront resorts such as The Shore at Katathani and the hip Boathouse by Montara.
Similarly, if you are a family traveling with kids of any age you will find luxury hotels like Katathani Resort & Spa with its kids club, 6 seaside pools and kids pool, the 2 bedroom private pool villas of Malisa Villa Suites featuring their own kitchens, or moderately priced resorts like Centara Kata to be ideally equipped with facilities for families.
